"Snow leopards are one of the world’s most elusive cats. Rarely seen, it requires remote camera traps to even capture a minute glimpse of them in their home range. I searched for this grey ghost in the remote Gilgit and Karakoram Mountains in Pakistan, and even though I was never able to see the mysterious cat, I know without doubt that a snow leopard saw me. I left Pakistan without sighting a leopard, but I found what I was looking for – the story. I followed their tracks, talked to the people, studied the landscape, found a kill sight, set up camera traps, and studied scat. I learned more walking in the snow leopard’s footsteps than I ever could have from a fleeting glance and went home with an intimate understanding of this ambiguous creature." - John Banovich
